Awesome foil card using @lilinkerdesigns


Im sharing a quick tutorial on adding foil to your die cuts over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.

I really wanted to focus to be the foiled die, but also needed to add a bit a something to the background as well.  I added a little embossing paste and gold liquid ink splatters.  I also added a few strips of washi underneath the panel as well.

Blog hopping with Bo Bunny hop- Thank You card

 Hello- Welcome to day 5 of the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Bo Bunny® hop!

This whole week the Scrapbook Adhesives and Bo Bunny teams are hopping along with tons of inspirations and of course prizes! 
My card today uses the Sweet Life Collection Pack again- I just love the papers in this collection! I decided to use the tag from the Flutter page as my focal point.  I adhered the 'thank you' using the letters from the Double Dot Aqua Stickers.  
What I loved about this tag is all the layered elements.  I also added a mini pink pearl to the center of the butterfly.  A few stickers and it's good to go!

I adhered the striped patterned paper using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable
again for the wood paper layer.  I then die cut a few circles and adhere them to the card along with twine.  I tucked a few more strips of scraps from the Wish & Blessed papers, sliding one end under the circles, and the other on top of them.
To finish the card off, I adhered the tag with 3D Foam Squares

Thanks for stopping by- read on to win!

Blog Hopping with Bo Bunny- Mothers Day Card & Bag

Hello- Welcome to day two of the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Bo Bunny® blog hop!

This whole week the Scrapbook Adhesives and Bo Bunny teams are hopping along with tons of inspirations and of course prizes! 

With Mothers day right around the corner, I thought I would make a card and gift bag ensemble.  I'm using the Sweet Life Collection Pack.

I've taken a regular kraft store white gift bag and covered the front with the floral side of the Enjoy 12 X 12 paper using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.  I then created banner pieces from the Inspire & Wish patterns.  

Then I adhered the doily shape using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable to the banner pieces. Before securing the whole thing to the bag, I tied some twine around several times and into a bow.  To finish the bag off, I added a few sequins.

To create the card, I used the same papers, starting with adhering a piece of the Inspire paper onto my card from using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.  I also used a strip of the floral Enjoy paper, and the remaining half of my daily die cut.  Once adhered together, I tied the twine around before securing to my card front.
I added a small strip of glittered card stock to the Wish strip of paper and then adhered them both to a stamped circle die cut.  To adhere the circle to my card I used 3D Foam Squares.  

To adhere the butterfly, I doubled up the larger of the variety mix 3D Foam Squares on the top wings, (because they will be hanging off of my popped up circle) and one of the smaller 3D Foam Squares on the bottom wings.

I added a few sequins here as well to finish it off.
and who doesn't love a giveaway?

Thinking of you using @AveryElleStamps

 Back for more watercoloring practice with my SpectrumAquas.  :)

I finally picked up some various types of watercolor paper, cheaper stuff to play on, strathmore and ranger to use for projects.  This is just the cheaper kind, this was a test run on this little cutie, but I LOVED how he turned out.
I added a heart from the Red & Goldie set to my Furry Friend pup, and the sentiment is from the  Petals & Stems set, all form Avery Elle.

I added a few splatters of ink and popped up my panel before sticking this little guy in the mail.  Working on being better about actually mailing these things out- the piles of cards are getting out of hand.

Hello card using @AveryElleStamps

Its Wednesday here, (I think...?) and we're halfway through spring break.  It's actually been pretty nice, we put the trampoline up a few weeks back and have had a revolving door of neighborhood kids in and out every day, and night.  ;)  I LOVE hearing them all play so happily and OUTDOORS no less.

anyways- onto my card.

I am sharing a quick card today- more watercolor practice with my spectrum aquas.  Lightly colored the adorable elephant, he's so darned cute!
I am not quite where I want to be with watercoloring yet, but I love all the ways you can use the Spectrum Aquas- they are SO fun!

You're Dog-Gone Awesome using @AveryElleStamps

Im sharing a card over on the CardMaker blog today, so I thought I would share here as well. :)

The premise of the post is to use your scraps on a project.  So here, my ribbon, kraft, & white card stock is my scrap pieces.  I still had the Spectrum Aquas out from a previous project as well as all the embossing items.  (I'm obsessed with heat embossing again! ;)  For years I hated to heat emboss anything, now I cant stop.

I heat set the adorable doggie, colored him in with the Spectrum Aquas and popped my tag up with 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment is also heat embossed and popped up.  I stamped a few paw prints, then covered them with glossy accents.  I love how this turned out, I am going to make a few more dog cards, I could use more practice with my coloring!
